The easiest answer would be that Hercules was the strongest individual, Achilles was the most skilled fighter, and that Alexander the great was the greatest general.

Unfortunately, this answer is far from complete. The question is essentially impossible to answer. In order to answer the question in any meaningful way the sources must be considered, and the sources for these three individuals is woefully inadequate.

Hercules is a purely mythological figure, and (unless one accepts Euhemerus' theory that mythological figures are based on vaguely remembered kings and heroes of the past) has no historical basis. To try to compare a mythological figure to a Alexander the Great, a historical figure, is nonsense.

Achilles is more complicated than Hercules; he may be a mix of myth and legend. Although most of what we know about him is undoubtedly fiction, such as the suggestion that he is the son of Thetis, a nymph. On the other hand, recent archaeological finds in Asia minor have strongly suggested that the siege of Troy actually did occur in the far past (perhaps the 11th century B.C.).

Even Alexander is problematic. Despite being a historical figure, we have no surviving firsthand accounts from his life. Even during his own life he was heavily mythologized, and as a result it is very difficult to separate fact from fiction in the surviving accounts we have of his life.

To sum it up, it has to be Hercules, the son of Zeus. He killed like eight unkillable monsters, and he once held the weight of the entire sky on his solders, and he eventually became a legitimate god. Achilles is skilled and all, but he was killed by an arrow. And while Alexander might be arguably the greatest tactician to have ever lived, and one of the most courageous to boot, he was still just a man.

Who is stronger Heracles or Achilles?

Heracles was definitely stronger than Achilles,because he is considered as the strongest man of antiquity. However, Achilles is considered as the greatest warrior of antiquity, which is why he was surrounded by the myth that he was invulnerable in all the parts of his body except his heels. The meaning of this myth is that he was such a skilled fighter that only an attack from behind ("on his heels") could result in victory over him. Achilles was the strongest man of his generation and one of the strongest men of antiquity, but not the strongest. When it comes to physical strength, Heracles is unmatched.

Who killed Achilles and how did he kill him and what was his reasons?

Achilles was killed by Paris during the Trojan War. Paris was Helen of Troy's kidnapper whom was the woman who caused the Trojan War. Paris was described as to being a cowardly individual whom had no intentions of fighting and was why he used his arrows. He shot Achilles in the heel, that's where Achilles heel' came from. Some say that Apollo, whom was on the Trojan's side, assisted in directing the arrow. Paris probably most likely killed Achilles because Achilles was the Achaean's (Greeks) best fighter and to avenge his brother, Hector's, death.
